Time running out to complete Courtenay transportation survey

Dear editor,

Have you taken the City of Courtenay's short online transportation-planning survey yet?

Dear editor,

Have you taken the City of Courtenay’s short online transportation-planning survey yet?

It’s quite simple and takes between five and 10 minutes. It’s important because transportation, or mobility, is a fundamental part of most people’s lives.

Where are the places you go? How do you get there? What are your experiences in doing so? What would you change to make it better?

You are your own expert in how you get around in your community. And the City of Courtenay wants to hear from you!

A 25-year long-term Transportation and Land Use Master Plan has recently started and there is opportunity for you to tell what your mobility issues are. Because the transportation system is a significant expenditure of municipalities, it’s important that it reflect the needs of the community it serves — now and in the future.

The City has a goal to reach 1,800 responses to get a reasonable sample size for the survey. You are encouraged to do your part and take the survey.

It can be accessed at www.courtenay.ca/TMP.aspx. Study background material is also available on the website. There are also hard copies available at Courtenay City Hall, Lewis Centre, Florence Filberg Centre and the LINC.

The deadline is Nov. 13. You do not need to be a resident of Courtenay to fill out the survey.

Nancy Hofer,

Comox Valley

Editor’s note: Nancy Hofer is the environmental planner for the City of Courtenay.
